Q. How has your reading habits changed since you were a teen? or If you are still a teen what new genres are you in love with currently?


My habits have changed by leaps and bounds. I read a lot when I was younger, but it was nothing like it is now.

As a teen, I would read whatever from the school library that caught my interest, which wasn't much at first. But then I began to read Harry Potter, and it opened up a whole new door to me. I just couldn't put them down. My aunt and cousin were equally obsessed, and still are. 

As a teen, I liked to pretend that I was into adult reads. Yeah, right. Still have a huge problem with even wanting to pick one up off the shelf. So, HP opened a huge gateway for me, which eventually led to my love for Mortal Instruments, Twilight Saga, The Hunger Games, and all the fab reads in between. And now? I can hardly keep my nose out of a book to hold a conversation!


Drop me a line!

I totally agree about HP, and the Mortal Instruments was THE book that introduced me to the wonderful world of YA. Without it, i doubt i'd read a tenth of what i do now :)
Stop by when you can, i love meeting new people!
And have an awesome weekend
